Link to audio tracks.Eugene Belov, Galina Vishnevskaya, Ivan Petrov, Sergei Lemeshev: vocal soloistsChorus & Orchestra of the Bolshoi Theater, MoscowBoris Khaikin: conductor“This studio recording—a rare undertaking during this period in the Soviet era—represents one of the high points of the Eugene Onegin discography, not just for historical reasons but for the heat and conviction of its artistry. Eight months pregnant at the time, Vishnevskaya brings out all the believable passion and richness of character that made her Tatyana such a celebrated portrayal. ‘To me she embodied everything that was most beautiful and valuable in Russian women: a deeply passionate nature, tenderness, boldness, and a willingness to sacrifice herself,’ writes Vishnevskaya in her memoirs. She is joined by reigning fellow artists from the Bolshoi. Eugene Belov communicates the aloofness of Onegin, laced with a tinge even of self–hatred.” — Thomas May Includes a 56-page booklet with historic photos, a complete transliterated Russian libretto with a new original English translation, and an essay on the performance by Thomas May.Ilustration © Rafal Olbinski,Courtesy of Patinae Inc.
